RF•STOP Digital Component RF Noise Isolation

RF•STOP Digital Component RF Noise Isolation

Regular price $3,995.00 Sale

RF•STOP™ is the only solution to definitively stop radiated RF noise (RF) from digital components impinging on your Digital-To-Analog Converter (DAC) to reduce transparency. Increased separation distance does attenuate RF but complete isolation is guaranteed only by enclosing your entire digital chain inside RF•STOP. So while signal and power isolation is required to stop galvanically conducted RF noise, for those who want to advance to an end-game, it's radiated RF that must also be dealt with.

The evidence for this is empirical. RF•STOP's Faraday shield construction and absorbing liner provides 90dB performance to block 99.9999999% of RF noise. Your DAC now measures ambient zero—even when alongside or stacked on top. Music takes on an analog-like smoothness yet is full of rich detail and nuance. Your DAC sounds its best when free of RF noiseRF•STOP reveals this ground truth.

Moreover, RF•STOP renders expensive digital tweaks unnecessary. Audiophile sources or exotic cables that reduce RF become ineffective when contained inside RF•STOP. No RF gets out anyway so your DAC is always untouched and always sounds its best. This is a huge win-win: you are now objectively confident in your digital end-game and you can wisely spend only on components of intrinsic value.

RF•STOP is sized to accommodate your upsampler, music server and I/O interfaces. RF isolation demands that all signals are ported through a waveguide using non-galvanic cables like toslink, OPTO•DX optical, or fibre USB/Thunderbolt/Ethernet. Power is provided by a single highly filtered (90dB+) AC connection. RF•STOP is air cooled with passive-flow venting or, if required, a low CFM fan can be attached.
